From June 17th to 29th in Moscow and St. Petersburg, 228 candidates will compete for the First Prize, not to mention a shot at the Grand Prize (awarded only three times ever)! The groundbreaking 2019 edition marks the arrival of two new instrument families: woodwinds and brass join piano, violin, cello, and voice. Here, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets and Conductor Valery Gergiev, who serve as co-chairs of the Organizing Committee, present the highlights of the upcoming edition, live from the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg.
